I made it for a recent social event and stressed about serving a new and completely untested recipe. How will my guest like it? How will I like it? Does it need more salt? Too salty? I should have stuck to a recipe I knew! You get the point.
I put pressure on myself because I love to put good food on the table regardless of the occasion. Minutes before the guests arrived I finally realized it just wasn't worth stressing and fretting over. Believe me when I say I've had my fair share of complete recipe flops but it wouldn't have been the end of the world if the dish feel short. I still had great company on the way and I'd live to cook another dish.
Turns out it was a huge hit and was gone by the end of the night. In fact, Adam and I made a smaller portion for ourselves later in the week. And now I want to share it with you.
I followed the recipe almost to a T. It was just a tad too acidic for me and I added a dash of sugar to balance it out.
